Bike Sharing System or Shared Bicycle System is one of the most important components of the micro-mobility ecosystem. Although shared scooter systems have become very common in recent years, the bicycle still maintains its polarity. Scooters are mostly devices that appeal to the 15-35 age group. However, bicycles are means of transportation that can be used easily up to the 65+ age group. For this reason, shared bike systems have a much wider customer base. Let's get to the part that interests us. Scootable is a micro mobility IOT platform. Although scooter is mentioned in its name, it operates in a vehicle-agnostic manner on a wide scale from scooter to bicycle, car, sea and air vehicles. Therefore, the software we developed is suitable for scooters as well as bicycles and other micro-mobility vehicles. You are only interested in choosing the model of your bike, we have all the difficult processes from payment systems to invoice system integrations, from sms integrations to IOT integrations.
This sentence is the question we have heard the most in recent months. How can I startup shared scooter business or bike, e-bike, moped etc. In general, how to start a micro mobility company? To set up a micro mobility firm, you need 3 key suppliers. The first of these is the software company that will provide you with a mobile application and management panel. Micro mobility software is complex software that works integrated with many third party systems such as payment, IoT, SMS, accounting integrations. Therefore, it is vital that you start with software that has been tried before and that people actively use. Scootable offers mobile application infrastructures for you in every country in the world in local languages and integrated with local payment systems. Your second key supplier is your scooter (or other micro-mobility vehicle) manufacturer. Finding a supplier that produces quality, reliable products is very important for your business. Otherwise, you may have devices that start to fall apart within a few months and wear out very quickly. For this reason, we recommend that you contact many companies and test the scooters if possible. If you make a software agreement with us before choosing a scooter/E-Bike, we get offers from our partner manufacturers at special discounted prices for you. Your third important supplier is IoT manufacturers. These devices, which provide communication between scooters and our software, provide communication with the sim card attached to them. The smooth operation of these devices is essential for the smooth operation of our software and scooters. In this sense, it is important to find an IoT supplier suitable for your scooter. If you make a software agreement with us before choosing the IoT, we get offers from our partner manufacturers at special discounted prices for you. Although we have IoT and scooter manufacturer partner companies, you are free to choose different scooter and IoT pairs. We just make some suggestions to make your job easier.
Teltonika IOTs, which we have been integrating for a while, are fully compatible with the Scootable platform as of June 2022. Thanks to this integration for the TST100 and TFT100 models, we have expanded the Scootable platform for many vehicles such as electric bicycles and electric forklifts, as well as electric scooters. For Teltonika branded IOTs other than TST100 and TFT100 models, the Scootable Platform has been made integrationable. For projects where other IOT models will be used, integration can be completed with a very fast process. TST100 IoT is also compatible with these scooter models; Segway MAX G30 - Segway MAX Pro - Segway MAX Plus - Segway ES2 - Segway ES4 - Xiaomi M365 - Xiaomi M365 Pro - Xiaomi M365 Pro 2 - Fitrider
Micromobility has been developing rapidly in the world in recent years. One of the most important reasons for this trend is its significant contribution to the efficient use of time by its users. Scootable is a software platform that allows vehicles such as electric scooters, electric bicycles, and cars to be rented in a shared model. Our main product is a software solution for micro mobility systems. That product is a device agnostic solution. By the way, companies/municipalities can use this software with e-scooters, bikes, e-bikes, cars or whatever they want to use. Our pricing model is a kind of SaaS model. They pay us for device per month or some alternative methods. Scootable has a lot of features. Some of main features is these;
- Rent and End Trip
- Payment Integrations
- IoT Integrations
- Earthquake Mode
- SMS API Integration
- User Friendly Admin Panel
- Awarded UI Design
- Advance Statistics
- Available for hybrid lock (Which is suitable for both docking system and dockless system at the same time)
U.S. based e-scooter producer Segway has more than 10 scooter models. Since we have used Segway scooters in our previous projects, we can attest that they are fully compatible with our platform.
China based e-scooter producer Freego have been producing various scooter models since 2016. Since we have used Freego scooters in our previous projects, we can attest that they are fully compatible with our platform.
There are two different communication protocols for e-scooters: TCP/IP and MQTT. Both communication protocols are compatible with Scootable. MQTT is defined as Message Queueing Telemetry Transport and is an OASIS standard publish-subscribe network protocol for the Internet of Things (IoT). It transports messages between the scooters and the server. It is designed as an extremely lightweight communication protocol which is ideal for connecting remote devices with minimal network bandwidth. TCP/IP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol and is a suite of communication protocols used to interconnect network devices on the internet. TCP/IP is also used as a communications protocol in the private scooter network. Both protocols are suitable for Scootable. However MQTT is a more reliable and secure protocol for IoT systems. We recommend you to prefere scooters with IoTs which have MQTT abilities.
